Phase N/A

Lymphedema Prophylaxis in Breast Cancer Survivors Who Show Early Evidence of High-risk Status

The current investigation is designed to prospectively evaluate the potential for simple, effective lymphedema prophylaxis in breast cancer survivors who show early evidence of high-risk status. There is growing evidence that the mechanisms of lymphatic repair after injury are mediated through lymphatic flow. Accordingly, we propose that physical measures designed ...

Phase N/A

Optimization of Mass Drug Administration With Existing Drug Regimens for Lymphatic Filariasis and Onchocerciasis for Ivory Coast (DOLF-Ivory Coast)

Lymphatic filariasis (LF) is a deforming and disabling infectious disease that causes elephantiasis and genital deformity (especially hydroceles). The infection affects some 120 million people in 81 countries in tropical and subtropical regions with well over 1 billion people at risk of acquiring the disease [1]. LF is caused by ...

Phase N/A

Selective Axillary Lymph Node Dissection Vs Complete Axillary Dissection: A Randomised Clinical Trial to Assess the Prevention of Lymphedema in Breast Cancer Treatment

To evaluate the efficacy, safety and cost reduction of SAD compared to standard ALND, we propose a prospective 2-arm randomised trial. The control arm consists of patients randomized to ALND, the study arm consists of patients randomized to SAD.

Phase N/A

Clinical Translation of a Novel Albumin-Binding PET Radiotracer 68Ga-NEB

The labeling of albumin has advantages as drawing blood is unnecessary and the operator labeling is not exposed to potentially infectious material. Evans blue (EB) dye has high affinity for serum albumin, The final obtained products NEB (a NOTA conjugate of a truncated form of Evans blue for in vivo ...

Phase

Lymphedema Progression Screening Using MRI

Lymphedema is a chronic, debilitating disease caused by lymphatic flow obstruction. Breast cancer-related lymphedema (BCRL) secondary to mastectomy and/or radiation therapy is a growing health concern, with a reported incidence as high as 94% in breast cancer survivors. Behavioral adjustments and aggressive therapeutic management can reduce long-term impairment and optimize ...

Phase N/A

Comfort Subcutaneous Drainage: a Descriptive Study Among Palliative Phase Cancer Patients

Lower limbs lymphedemas are often reported in advanced palliative phase cancer patients. These oedemas have multiple causes and are complicated to be taken care of. Actual available treatments such as physiotherapist massage and compression stockings, are often lacking efficiency and are not adapted for these patients. Physical embarrassment, pain and ...

Phase N/A

Effectiveness of Fluoroscopy-guided MLD for Treatment of BCRL

According to the International Society of Lymphology, lymphoedema needs to be treated with Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy (Consensus Document ISL 2013). This is a two-stage treatment programme. During the first or intensive phase, lymphoedema has to be maximally reduced. This phase consists of skin care, manual lymph drainage (MLD), multi-layer bandaging ...

Phase N/A

Out-of Pocket Payments in Patients With Lymphedema

Primary lymphedema is a chronic condition posing a high burden on patients. Clinical guidelines emphasize the role of compression therapy by prescription medical devices. Even in a mandatory publicly funded health insurance system, out-of-pocket payments (OOPP) may exist due to the price and reimbursement setting processes. OOPP may threaten the ...

Phase N/A

Rehabilitation of Patient With Acute Isolated PCL Rupture

The posterior cruciate ligament injuries (PCL) is rare and rehabilitation methods are varying. The purpose of the study is to explore if one rehabilitation option is preferable to one other for patients with acute PCL injury, by examining whether there will be differences in laxity in the knee joints and ...
